New York Times bestselling author/ghostwriter Joni Rodgers was born into a family bluegrass band and grew up on stage. She finished her first two novels while undergoing treatment for blood cancer as a young mom. “They said I could hope for five years,” says Joni. “I had two goals for that time: to leave a handprint of lovingkindness on my family and to write one truly good book.” Twenty years and more than a dozen books later, Joni is a busy novelist and ghostwriter specializing in celebrity memoirs, but she recently took several months off to sit and play ukulele for her mom, who was dying of Alzheimer’s. “I’m still on that five-year plan,” she says. “Love and family come first, and whatever book I’m working is that one book that means the world to me.” Joni lives with her husband, a jet mechanic and winemaker, in Houston, Texas.
